AttractionsFrench Celtic Camp

If you think that the only place you will find Celtic history in France is in Brittany think again. Camp celtique de la Bure in the heart of the Vosges Mountains, 4.6 miles from St-Dié, should satisfy any Celtic lover. The camp dates back as far as 2000 BC and still has its wall, ramparts and gate. The twenty-minute hike, plan for an hour and a quarter to see everything, to the camp offers wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and is easy to follow and offers a nice way to stretch you legs after a long drive, just stay on the paths with the green squares or white lines on trees.
Throughout the camp are carved stones, one has an illustration of two people separated by a lighted torch, thought to be from the 2nd century. Other highlights include, an ironworks where iron and other metals were found dating from as far back as the 12 century BC, and a pool.
More artifacts from the camp can be found at the Musée Pierre Noël (Museum Pierre Noël).

Getting there - From St-Dié Cathedral follow the signs direction Nancy at the roundabout to the right as you exit the Cathedral. You will be on rue Pierre Evrat, at the next roundabout stay right, going on to avenue de Verdun. At the fifth street turn right, direction Marzelay. Drive through Marzelay, staying on the main road that becomes Route du Camp Celtique. Then follow the signs Col de la Crenée. Park near the picnic table and look for the trail marked Camp celtique de la Bure.
